Dana White Is Currently the Most Influential Person in the World

Time 100 Poll Dana White
(Well, well, well, fuckers. Image courtesy of

This morning, Time launched its 2010 TIME 100 Poll, in which online readers vote on the world’s most influential people of the year. It’s impressive enough that UFC president Dana White was chosen to be among the 201 politicians, entertainers, and assorted cultural leaders that are up for voting. It’s downright bizarre that as of a few minutes ago when I took the above screen-cap, Dana White was sitting on top of the freaking list, three spots above Barack Obama, 18 spots above Stephen Colbert, and 34 spots above Bill Gates. His only real competition at this point is Robert Pattinson, the poof from those vampire movies.

If this is an April Fool’s joke from, it’s an incredibly subtle and brilliant one. More likely, it’s just another sign that UFC fans are a group that’s both large and quickly mobilized on the Internet, and that Dana White has more nuthuggers that the president of our country. So let’s enjoy this odd little victory while we have it, because once Team Coco and the Colbert Nation get wind of this, it’s going to be a dogfight. To vote for Dana White as the most influential person in the world (!?), click here.

Lol, Lady Gaga appears to be #1 and WAY ahead of everybody else right now.

Most muricans really are grotesque these days IMO.

I could have sworn that time magazine had a pretty good reputation as a news source for many years.

But when I picked up a copy in the freebie bin at the library last year I almost vomited at what an unabashed pop-liberal smut rag it is now.

It was a real horrorshow.

I'm sure Dana loves the attention wherever it comes from, but I cant take anything printed inside that magazine seriously.

I'd be embarrassed if I was time magazines man of the year.

I can't believe there's someone called Kaká on that list. What the fuck is going on in this world. And please wipe Taylor "Fuckin'-aye right I suck lemons" Swift, Sarah "Dahaaahhhrr!" Palin and Beyoncé's stuck up ass off that list.

Stoked to see Jeff Bridges up there though :)

By the way, Bens, that's a great fuckin' caption...makes me laugh every time I read it.

anon will fix this.

Of course Dana White is more influential than anyone else on that list. The UFC is exciting, it's infectious and it's spreading worldwide... sorta like, well... AIDS, but in a non-life-threatening, but still spreading like a virus kinda way.

Wow, yeah, I REALLY hope this is a joke. Dana White is an influential guy... but mostly to us MMA fans. I don't see his influence extending all that far out otherwise.

Fuck me, I hope he wins anyhow.

Suck it Obama!

And I call shenanigans.

Do the people voting on this even know what influential means? Are people seriously viewing Dana White as a huge influence on the world? Seriously? Christ, I guess it is time for that plague of frogs, after all.
Blain MacBilly- April 1, 2010 at 1:17 pm
April 1 people...this is pretty elaborate but there's no way that Colbert would come in at 19.
El Topo- April 1, 2010 at 1:04 pm
But where's Buff Bagwell?

Conan FTW!
Robocop Didnt Tap- April 1, 2010 at 12:31 pm
Who the fuck is KaKa? I want he/she/it to win, just for the name.
LET IT RAIN- April 1, 2010 at 12:28 pm
it's no joke, but i don't see anyone else pointing people to vote for them from their business twitter accounts. The UFC Twitter account ahs been pointing people to the poll. My name is Dana White and if you like how i sing please vote for me by calling this number.
rlh61- April 1, 2010 at 12:18 pm
Most influential people in the world?? Got to be a joke...look at all the Hollywood d-bags on this list.

There are some that should be there (like them or not), but...snookie? The fucker that knocked her out is more infuential than she is...put him on the list.
Douchey McDoucherton- April 1, 2010 at 12:09 pm
Fake Scott Coker has my vote.
